“Facebook helps you connect and share with the people in your life.
Whether you want to or not.”
Openbook is an online service that lets you quickly and easily search through public posts on Facebook. Even a few minutes playing with it will have you despairing for the future of America.
But Openbook has some positive uses – beyond revealing how appallingly lax and stupid so many people are about what they say in such a public forum. You can search on various derogatory terms and bits of hate speech, click over to the offending user’s profile, and then report them, using the Report/Block link along the left side.
It’s a very minimal form of cyberactivism, but something to do while stealing back your life from your bosses.
